“For the Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands. He knows your going through this great wilderness. These forty years the Lord your God has been with you. You have lacked nothing.”
“For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land… in which you will lack nothing… And you shall eat and be full, and you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you” (Deut 2:7; 8:7-10)
These days I look at myself and wonder… I am a miracle to myself. I feel like lighter, like something is missing… something bad and negative is not here anymore. So I asked myself: ‘what can this thing be?’ I had to examine myself. This is what I discovered: I have lost my ‘wants’. Do you know what I mean?
“The Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not want” (Ps 23:1). This wonderful word of God has been fulfilled in my life. I testify that I have lost my anxiety of wanting things to change, the desire to acquire things for the sake of having them, the passion to please men and the wish to be different than I am today. Like a sheep and her Shepherd, the Lord takes care of me. My faith is now deep, anchored in the promises of God. In the past, I lacked nothing. Even in the difficult season of the desert of my life, when things look hard and often hopeless, looking back I can say that I lacked nothing of value. Then God promises me than even in the future I shall lack nothing.
So why worry? Past, present and future is settled. Things and circumstances may change but God never changes. This is my declaration: I shall not want! I shall lack nothing! For Jesus is my Savior and y Lord! The Word of God abides forever. ‘Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever’ (Hebrew 13:8). To God be all the glory!
